As you maybe aware winter has already crept up on us, most of us think that for the next few months we are away from all the damage that the sun can do to our hair. But here at Bloomskincare we want to tell you that winter brings along a number of problems too, so it is also an important time to take care of your locks the same as you would during the summer months.
Winter is a great time for relaxing , getting cosy and wearing warm clothes, but your curls will feel the effects of the weather change and the cold, dry, damp air along with central heating can play havoc with the condition of your hair. It will start to find it harder to retain moisture, making it dry, brittle & prone to breakages, will become static and frizzy due to our wonderful wardrobe choices during winter, from pulling jumpers and hoodies over our head, to wearing those wonderful hats and snoods.
DO NOT FEAR THOUGH, ALL THESE PROBLEMS CAN BE AVOIDED WITH THE RIGHT AND SIMPLE STEPS
Dry/ flaky scalp: During the winter months your scalp can be drier & itchier than normal due to lack of moisture in the air, this can lead to dandruff and aggravated scalp, these can be manageable with the right care. Olive oil is a great natural Remedy for flaky scalps, it has great moisturising properties and is rich in vitamins A, E and antioxidants, olive oil helps protect the natural keratin and seals in moisture. Olive oil can also remove the build-up of sebum that impedes the formation of new follicles and hinders hair growth. Here at Bloomskincare we recommend a great product to help fight dry/flaky scalps and dry hair, La’dor hydro LPP treatment hair mask: containing olive oil and many other amazing natural ingredients like Jojoba oil & Carrot seed oil will help moisturise and protect your locks from the scalp to the ends.
Dry/Damaged hair: The lack of moisture in the air during winter dries out your scalp and your locks, leaving it looking frizzy, dull and lifeless. During the winter months, it’s a great idea to use a treatment mask for your hair. This will help to replenish the moisture, which tends to get depleted from things such as the dry heat in your house caused by central heating and the cold winter air outside.
